Dear Soliya Network community,
You know first-hand the value of engaging in meaningful dialogue and collaboration with people from all over the world.
This week is International Education Week in the United States, which is a perfect opportunity for you to tell your stories and to help spread awareness about virtual exchange!
In 2011, Soliya joined together with several other like-minded groups to form the Exchange 2.0 Coalition. The Coalition’s purpose is to foster a more supportive and generative ecosystem for virtual exchange to develop, innovate and grow. This week, the Exchange 2.0 Coalition launched a brand new website for virtual exchange.
In honor of International Education Week and in recognition of the growing significance of our work together, please take the following actions to promote virtual exchange:
- Check out the Exchange 2.0 website, and spread the word: Share the link with your communities and add your voices directly to the site through the Get Involved section.
- Join the “I <3 Virtual Exchange” campaign: Visit the Get Involved section of www.exchange2point0.org for instructions! Participation involves taking a picture with an “I <3 virtual exchange because…” sign and then uploading it to the Exchange 2.0 website or posting it directly to twitter with the hashtag #exchange20. Continue to follow www.exchange2point0.org and #exchange20 on Twitter to view and share other people’s pictures from around the world!
- Learn more about International Education Week (IEW) and join the conversations: Visit the International Education Week Facebook page and join the Twitter conversation via the hashtag #IEW2013. Don’t forget to also use #exchange20 when you’re posting!
With much gratitude,
The Soliya Team
